The good news I suppose: the "smarter" our products get, the bigger the market is for "dumb" products that just sit there and do what they're supposed to do, whether that's a television that just displays the damn signal sent to it or utterly insentient dolls that just shut up, smile and drink their fake tea.
Idly looking at big screen TVs lately, I realized the non-smart versions sell for about $200 less. That's $200 you could use to put together a simple HTTPC (Home Theater PC) with Linux and avoid all the app nonsense from Roku, Samsung etc.
Maybe, just maybe, one of these days the legacy entertainment players will get the message that innovators and entrepreneurs aren't the enemy. They're the ones providing Hollywood (and music and other industries) with all the tools to better serve the market.
I stopped selling on Zazzle after they refused to allow me to offer this (It was titled 'Star Wars' at the time, but I like 'Shooting Star' better). Either way, it bears absolutely no resemblance to any Mouse-owned properties.

I copy from - in no particular order and to varying degrees - R. Crumb, Jack Davis, Ileana Grimm, M. K. Browne, Don Martin, Gahan Wilson, Gary Larson, Ed Roth and Rick Griffin for my enormously popular Art Humor Blog.
Without the tricks, techniques and attitude I've gotten from their work, I would not be the author of an enormously popular Art Humor Blog.
Did I mention that I am the author of an enormously popular Art Humor Blog?
